My favorite TV censorship ever is in Repo Man. They took a recording of Emilio Estevez saying "flip," and dubbed it over all 78 times he used the F-word in the movie, and even one time someone else used it. At the end of the movie, when she asks, "Otto, what about our relationship?" he turns around and says, "Flip." That is a truly great moment.

PS, Repo Man is another one of my favorite movies.

1. Last Starfighter?

2. Jane Fonda in Barbarella.

3. There are multiple good answers, but Wizard of Oz has to be the winner.

7. Empire Strikes Back is better than Star Wars, which retroactively became first Star Wars 1 and then Star Wars Episode 4: A New Hope.

8. Back to the Future, featuring the Delorean.

9. Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure wasn't Keanu Reeves' first movie, but it is probably the one that launched his career into high orbit.

10. The Lord of the Rings was a zealous attempt to use state-of-the-art (for 1978) rotoscoping, as well as some new tricks like filming background paintings the same way live-action pictures do. Their budget was cut, the movie was released without "Part One," and plans for the second half were shelved, leaving everyone in suspense until 2002 (except those who can read).

I'm guessing that 4, 5, and 6 are too vague for me to get without further clues (at least without a lot of googling). Am I right on those too? :)

Before Lord of the Rings, if you asked somebody to spend 12 hours of their life with you watching midgets and elves mud-wrestle, you would've just gotten weird looks from every normal person ... and ended up spending the night with a man who drives a van for a living.


Getting people to sit still for three straight hours nowadays is an impressive enough feat ... but getting them to do so on three separate occasions when your protagonist is a doe-eyed dwarf who spends more time staring blankly and not reacting than the entire cast of The Hills... well, that was nothing short of a miracle....

If you mentioned that it was a touching love story between two straight men, and Orlando Bloom spends a lot of time running around in tights, I think a lot of women and 7-12% of men depending on whose statistics you choose would have been there in a flash.

Didn't look farther down than number one on the list ... pretty sure Steve McQueen drove a Ford Mustang GT in Bullet.

Never saw any of the other movies, so won't hazard a guess.

But weren't the hitmen he was chasing in a Plymouth Valiant or something?

I haven't seen it in a long time, so I could be way off.

Or maybe it's simpler--maybe he's just looking for American muscle cars in general--Mustang, Valiant, Charger, Fury, whatever?

Arent there any other MOPAR fans out there??? wow... i thought this wouldve been the easiest 8|



Bullitt (1968 ) - (who cares about the ford LOL) 1968 Dodge Charger 440 with speeds of 110 mph reached (for real) in the chase scene

Duel (1971) - Plymouth Valiant or Dodge Dart driven by Dennis Weaver on the run from a pizzed off trucker driving a Peterbilt. ShoesHughes wrote, “It's a 1971, and sometimes 1972, Valiant; either a 225 or a 318, depending on scene.” Erik Blitvitch wrote, “Sometimes you can see the Swinger emblem on the front fender.”

Vanishing Point (1971) - 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T 440 four-speed. The Challenger survived - a Camaro was the stand-in for the final destruction scene. Cars were supplied by and returned to Dodge. Erik Blitvich wrote, “the two cops were chasing the Challenger with a 1968 Charger R/T. One cop said when entering the Charger, ‘It takes a Mopar to catch a Mopar.’” I FRIGGIN KNEW IT!!! watched the ending where he commits suicide by diving the car into the bulldozers the cops set up as a road block.... watched it slooo-mooo frame-by-frame, and thought that was a camaro!!! the rear side windows changed in the last seconds!!! WHOOO HOOO they trashed the Camaro instead of the Challenger! :thumbsup: the original movie was WAAAYYY better than the remake.... plus the chick on the motorcyle was actually nakid in the first movie....

Dirty Mary Crazy Larry (1974) - Variety of muscle including 1969 Charger R/T 440.... could not tell if they really trashed the charger in the end, when the train hits them... even frame-by-frame you cant tell if it was really the same car...

Thunderbolt and Lightfoot (1974) - Starring: Clint Eastwood, et al. Director: Michael Cimino
Featuring: Big 'C' Body mopars.


Mother, Juggs, & Speed (1976) - Several 1971-73 Dodge B-Van ambulances; local police use 1971-72 AMC Matadors - funny but depressing movie

Phantasm (1979) - Steve Inman: “In Phantasm 1, the Mopar was a Challenger. From Phantasm 2 on, it was a Cuda.” Raymond Chang: "In Phantasm, the star was a 1971 340 Cuda. In Phantasm II it was a 1971 318 Barracuda that was dolled up to appear like a Hemi Cuda. In Phantasm III and IV it is an actual 1970 Hemi Cuda convertible." Joe Ward: “In first movie, the car is a 1971 but the hood emblem states it’s a 440-6 pack.” - Still an awesome horror movie for being so old !!!

Christine (1983) - Featuring: 1958 Plymouth Fury

Natural Born Killers (1994) - red 70 Challenger R/T convertible

Tommy Boy (1995) - 1967 Plymouth GTX/Satellite Convertible

Blade (1998 ) - vampire hunter driving 1968 or 1969 dodge charger - didnt get a good look at it

Joe Dirt (2001) - 1969 Dodge Daytona, Plymouth GTX, car claimed to be a Road Runner (it’s probably a GTX) - all driven by David Spade


Joy Ride (2001) - Paul Walker (lead) drives 1971 Chrysler Newport across the country playing cat & mouse with a psycho trucker

The Fast and the Furious (2001) - 1970 Dodge Charger (featured; crashed).

House of Wax (2005) - features red 1968 Charger - typical slasher movie lol

Death Proof (2007) - Quentin Taretino movie - “There is a white 1970 440 Challenger and a black 1969 Charger in a spectacular car chase”

Did you look at the first response?

Yeah, OK, some of them were Dodge or Chrysler, but they're the same company, and the same cars. A Chrysler is just a Plymouth with leather seats, and a Dodge is just a Plymouth with fake leather seats. (Even you didn't remember, or care, if it was a Valiant or a Dart in Duel.)

And, by the way:
Mother, Juggs, & Speed (1976) - Several 1971-73 Dodge B-Van ambulances; local police use 1971-72 AMC Matadors - funny but depressing movie
Now you're cheating. AMC wasn't part of Chrysler-Plymouth until 1987, and wasn't using Mopar parts until 1979.

Mopar is still Mopar... no matter when the divisions were bought by daimler/chrysler .... and I dont think it was all that long ago that Jeep became Mopar :-)

we had a 1970 dodge charger 500-SE woodgrain with leather seats :P no fake leather!! also had a 64 valiant... reminded me of the chevy nova II in a way.... but I much prefer the Dodge Challenger over the Plymouth Cuda... the body line makes the car look bad azz :thumbsup: tho its a toss-up on which is nicer... the Dodge Daytona, or Plymouth Superbird!!!!! Love them winged-warriors!!!!

1987. They'd already merged with AMC somewhere back in the 70s, long before Chrysler-Plymouth bought AMC.

I remember this because my sister had a 1987 CJ. This was a very bad vehicle to own. AMC-Jeep replaced the 1987 CJ-7 with the 1987 AMC Jeep YJ-7 after only 3 months. Then Chrysler bought AMC and renamed the same vehicle as the Jeep CJ Wranger. And meanwhile, the old (early-80s model) CJ-7 was still being made by Mitsubishi and imported grey-market into the US. So, there were four different models of the 1987 CJ, and all of them but the YJ and Wrangler take totally different parts. Lots of fun....

You're probably thinking of either the pre-81 models, with the famous 60 Minutes special and all that, or the 87- (AMC Wrangler) model.

As far as I know, nobody actually knows how bad the rollover problems were for the models in between. After the 1981 scandal, the NHSTA threw out their old standards and wrote new ones, then decided their new ones were untestable, so they just stopped doing tests. The insurance companies did their own tests, but were blocked by an injunction from publishing them. The NHSTA finally started doing tests again after the Suzuki Samurai scandal in 1988, and it turned out that the AMC Wrangler actually was actually more dangerous than the Samurai. But the final Jeep CJ-7 model? Who knows. Hers never rolled over, so what else matters? :)
we had a 2008 wrangler, soft top... they are loads of fun!!! cant understand why anyone would want a hard-top wrangler, tho... theyre kinda oxy-moronish ... the whole point is to have the top off :thumbsup:
Yeah, I agree. In fact, my sister's next Jeep after the CJ was a special edition (I think it was called "Wrangler Custom Sport California" or something silly like that), which had an extra rollbar and no top at all. Which she never took off-road once. (I did twice, sort of.) After that, she got the Grand Cherokee, which is basically a van with a Jeep nametag on it. She never took that off-road either.

Personally, I'd rather be on a dirt bike than in a Jeep for going off-road. For that matter, I'd rather be on a scooter or a small sport bike than in a car on the road. You can't beat the control, road feel, or acceleration of 2 wheels.
